Thursdays Are Back at the Library in January…
and so is the coffee shop!
(November 4, 2015)
Beginning Thursday, Jan. 7, the Library will re-open on Thursdays from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Hungry for some help keeping your New Year’s Resolutions? Thirsty for some good, free live music? Or simply looking for a cozy place to get together with friends and combat a blustery January? Now you’ll be able to feed your information needs seven days a week. 


If you’d like to feed your body as well as your mind, check out the new Literary Feast Café in January. Owner Joslyn Webster said the café will offer organic gourmet sandwiches, soups, salads, smoothies and pastries. The Literary Feast will also feature coffees and teas from Portland-area companies.


Webster and her family are Tigard residents, avid readers and library users. Each item on the menu will be named after a book. Visit us at the library in January and indulge in both literary and culinary treats.

Library Materials Will Be Checked In Quicker with Automated System

(July 1, 2015)
You might notice some changes at the Tigard Public Library in July, when the library will complete its installation of a new automated system to check in library materials. Library users will be able to return items directly to the machine, either inside or outside the library. Patrons may still also return items at the drive-up book drops.
The biggest change will be a walk-up area in the front of the building at the southeast end. The new system will be able to check in up to 1,200 items an hour, 24 hours a day. The City Council approved the system’s purchase in the 2014–15 budget, to check in and re-shelve items more quickly.

Library Self-checkout Machines Require Passwords
(January 16, 2015)
Library patrons now must use their passwords on the self-check machines. This change will improve library card security by preventing someone from using a lost or stolen card on the machines.  Patrons will use the same password that they use to access their account online. If they have forgotten their password or wish to reset it, they can change it online on their account or ask at the Circulation or Welcome desks.
